S defined by PONTECORVO (1958) , recombination is ". . . any process which Agives origin to cells or individuals associating in new ways two or more hereditary determinants in which their ancestors differed . . .". According to this definition, genetic transformations of bacteria constitute a special mode of recombination. In transformation a new combination of hereditary determinants is produced following the exposure of a suitably marked recipient strain of bacteria to the deoxyribonucleic… CONTINUE READING
